Lafayette Jeff Tops CC In J&C fifth-place game, 48-42

November 18, 2012
Lafayette Jefferson High School



Lafayette Jeff was clinging to a five-point lead in the final minute of Saturday’s J&C Hoops Classic fifth-place game when Central Catholic sophomore Angela Tharp came down with a rebound.

Carlie Hinkel, who spent the offseason working to get stronger, reached in and ripped the ball away from the smaller Tharp and Kaylee Simms followed with a free throw to conclude Lafayette Jeff’s 48-42 victory over the Knights.

“I just worked on being strong with the ball,” Hinkel said. “My strength has gone up a lot, and I think that helped a lot this season.”

If the Bronchos are to be successful this season, coach Geoff Salmon said his team will have to play sound defense and get offensive contributions all the way around.

So far, the defense has been there. The 42 points scored by CC is the most in four games against Jeff this season.

On Saturday in Resler Gymnasium, the offense came around, too. All eight players who got on the court scored, led by Aliyia Kind’s 13 points. Hinkel added 12 points and eight rebounds and Kara Homeier contributed eight, including a big 3-pointer to put the Bronchos ahead 41-36 with 4:29 to go.

After the Bronchos saw CC guard Cameron Onken get to the basket at will against McCutcheon Thursday and score 16 points, Jeff put emphasis on the Knights freshman and limited Onken to eight points on 4-of-11 shooting.

“We knew we had to shut down their leading scorers, and Onken was one of them,” Hinkel said. “Our big focus was stopping her from taking the ball to the basket. We were face-guarding her.”

Emily Denhart scored 12 points and had eight rebounds for the Knights, helping CC build a 27-21 lead early in the second half.

Kind sparked an 11-0 run and had seven points in the third period, helping the Bronchos win their second straight after a combined 55 points in their first two games, losses to Western Boone and Harrison.

“We’re way better Saturday than we were Monday. That’s the way we’ve got to approach it,” Salmon said. “We can’t go on wins and losses, because our conference is just a beast. Our improvement has to be gauged on how we play.

“We’ve seen the improvement, and it is easier to sell the kids now that they see it too.”

Jeff’s 11 straight points put the Bronchos ahead 32-27. Alanna Roswarski’s four-point play cut it to one, but the Knights were never able to recapture the lead.

Roswarski had 14 points and two steals, but CC struggled getting rebounds against a bigger Broncho team that includes 6-foot-1 Hinkel, 5-10 Martina McQuay and 5-9 Allesandra Aikerson-Russell. Lafayette Jeff won the rebounding battle 41-26.

“Jeff girls go after the boards,” said CC coach Craig DeVault, who was an assistant with the Bronchos before taking over CC this season. “We didn’t block out, and they outrebound us by 15. We’ll work on it.”
